to president obama. there's been a national security meeting. the white house says previously scheduled. but there was a gathering of all the top officials around 11:15 this morning. our google hangout plus with secretary kerry was postponed at the last minute today for obvious reasons. secretary kerry is leaving for istanbul for a meeting with president erdogan as he continues with his mission to try to sort out policy and the way forward, in syria, and then going to a nato meeting in brussels. there's a lot of balls in the air right now but principally we have a law enforcement challenge on our hands and it is being from all accounts, it is being handled brilliantly by massachusetts, boston and local, state and local police, all coordinating through governor patrick and other law enforcement officials the massachusetts emergency management team, the federal authorities, and all of course reporting to and coordinated by the fbi. this is the system that was put in place after the worst tragedy america endured, 9/11. after that, we had hearings, we had investigations, the creation of hom
his more conservative votes and his dragging feet, they felt, in fact on the writing of obama care. >> let's start with the gun vote, andrea, that you mentioned. max baucus was asked why he voted against background checks. and gave a one-word answer, montana. which made everyone, including myself, believe that he was running for re-election. that this was about his politics in a state. trace it back to health care. i asked him, is there a less popular democratic senator in the white house than max baucus. there aren't a lot. if there are any, this is someone who has been a bur in the side of the white house, particularly on health care. the way in which the health care debate played out. baucus was someone who wanted to control the bill. the white house sort of of ceded it to him and then it looked like it wasn't going to be what they wanted it led to a vast story in 2009-2010, the battle over health care. max baucus was at the heart of that. i would say just very quickly, andrea, five of the six democratic committee chairman in the senate are retiring. if that doesn't tell you som
disagree with the obama's administration decision to rule out enemy combatant suspect. >> reporter: labeling him as an enemy combatant would allow the government to question him without an attorney president and maybe get some of those answers. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. >> thanks, barbara. most of us can't even begin to imagine the incredibly tense moments that led up to the arrest of dzhokhar cztsarnaev. but that's what they are trained to do. the s.w.a.t team that took tsarnaev into custody describes the final moments to anderson cooper. let's listen. >> let's do it. let's do what we're trained to do. this is the suspect. we're trained to go in and apprehend him. you can see one hand is clear of any weapons each time he went the other way, his hand went down inside the boat out of our view. i know everybody here we've spoken about it. each time he did that, we had to assume he was reaching for either a weapon, a firearm or some explosive ignition device to kind of draw us in and take us out in a suicide type manner. he did that a couple of times as we're still approaching
system of justice. >> i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect. >> reporter: and the question of whether the fbi dropped the ball in 2011 when it looked at tamerlan tsarnaev's activity will be the subject of a closed-door briefing on capitol hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they mig
obama and the first lady, we saw the governor, the mayor, huge venue for that interfaith service last thursday. we'll play that for you. and we will stop talking and pause to reflect. we promise to do that. i want to take you live to deb feyerick, who has been going over some of the details in the charges, reading through the criminal complaint. and, deb, talking about this earlier, the charges don't include that m.i.t. police officer shot and killed. >> correct. that's exactly right. you know, this criminal complaint really -- this is -- i've seen this happen before, this criminal complaint is roughly, let's see, this is ten pages long. when the final -- when the actual indictment comes out, chances are it will be many times larger than this. usually, you know, the indictments we get are anywhere between 40, 50, 60 pages, it all depends. this is what they have got so far. this is enough for them to hold this man in the hospital, as they continue to investigate. there is a lot of evidence out there, and very interesting, earlier you showed a picture of a group of people that are aroun
